The main advantage is it easy to pack and convenient to carry but the disadvantage is that if thrown of just as anyother waste, it will remain just in the sand and prevent water from seeping into the earth, there by creating a shortage of ground water, and if thrown around, many animals like goats, cows, etc., eat them and die
